How Protected Is The Baby

Is it possible to hurt the baby by pressing on my belly? I'm 38 weeks and he's breech...I've been trying all of the "tricks" to get him to flip over and sometimes my ribs hurt VERY bad with him nestled in them all day...last night I pushed and massaged him down out of them but I'm afraid I could hurt him pressing on him. Is this something to worry about?

I don't think so. Last night, I was in a birthing refresher course and the instructor talked about how the doctors can try to turn the baby externally- sometimes it takes two people, but they maneuver the baby around from the outside of your belly. Our instructor said it is about 60% effective......sometimes I guess they can turn back around......but you might look into giving this a try. Best of luck to you.
